We are all well aware of the craze sweeping the world with PokemonGo and the crafting world is no different. Hats, scarves, mitts, gloves, teddies, bags, lovies, blankets…you name it, we’ve all seen it or you been asked to make it or asked someone to make it.
(Above is a Poke-ball keyring I made using cotton thread and a 1.25mm hook. I added a proper keyring loop so it could be attached to keys).
I was asked to make a set for Christmas and I obliged. It included a selection of pokemon characters, along with some poke-balls, poke-balls that opened and some poke-egg drawstring bags. Some are below…
The photos have their own captions but there were more including Picachu, Charmander, Bulbasaur, Squirtle and Zubat.
They were all pretty much the same size and sat neatly in the palm of your hand. All used DK yarn and a 4mm hook. They were fiddly at times but great fun to make. They were also free patterns found through Nicole’s Nerdy Knots Facebook Page and the CrochetGo Facebook Page.
There were so many more other patterns available, all favourite characters, all well known ones, some not so well known ones, the old ones, new ones and many more in between. I may just start making some more just because I can.
I did also make a larger version of the Picachu as a Christmas present for my son. Which again was from Nicole and it stood a good 6 or so inches in height if not more.
